How a remote access VPN works
While VPN technology isn’t new, remote access VPN as a service is a modern security solution for everyday business needs. Your teams need to work safely from anywhere, anytime, and on any device.
A remote access VPN creates an encrypted tunnel between your organization’s resources, endpoint devices on the network, and the employees using them — shielding all online activity from outside users, and safeguarding sensitive areas of the network. A remote access VPN works to mitigate the risk of internal data breaches, facilitate remote workers, and defend against malicious attacks.
As part of a robust security solution - like NordLayer - remote access VPNs for business offer a much more flexible and cost-effective way for companies to secure their remote teams, address their ad-hoc needs, and protect critical assets.
Seamless remote business network access, wherever you are
A remote access VPN can be deployed in minutes, provide instant access to your applications, and enable you to manage permissions to critical resources when used with an IP allowlist (whitelist).
Provides smooth access to business resources
Keep your corporate network secure with a remote office VPN. Pick any virtual location for your office, create custom gateways for your team members, and ensure safe and convenient access to company resources wherever they are.
Prevents unauthorized users
You decide which users can access sensitive corporate assets. Using the remote access VPN within a flexible security solution - such as NordLayer - you can quickly achieve segmentation by assigning team IP addresses — controlling access to gateways and servers you choose.

When is a remote access VPN needed?
Connecting to a work network from anywhere
If you have a distributed workforce, or you’re working remotely, a secure connection to your company network is vital. A remote access VPN encrypts online traffic, allowing you to access resources and keep data safe while working across any wi-fi connection.
Accessing work files
Remote access to work files is essential in today’s climate. A remote office VPN enables you to securely access resources and applications on your company network whilst keeping them away from unauthorized users, and hidden from public view.
Business network perimeters must be encrypted and tunneled to accommodate remote workers and other office locations. NordLayer can build dedicated gateways that enable secure access to your company’s LAN, so everyone has controlled access to safely connect to company resources.

Frequently asked questions
How can a VPN create secure remote access?
By utilizing AES-256 bit encryption, NordLayer’ solution creates a secure tunnel between endpoints — effectively blocking all traffic from outside the network.
Is remote access the same as VPN?
Remote access is a byproduct of a secure connection to an internal network from an external one. In simple terms: by using a VPN, you can securely access files, sites, and apps remotely.
Which protocols are used by a remote access VPN?
NordLayer office and remote access VPN offers three types of tunneling protocols. These are:
• IPSec/IKEv2 - A dependable, stable option - especially when moving between different networks.
• OpenVPN (UDP) - A good combination of speed and security, but it may not work on all networks.
• OpenVPN (TCP) - A secure and reliable protocol - although slower than UDP, TCP works on the vast majority of networks.
What is the most secure remote access protocol?
There is no one protocol more secure than another — they all offer pros and cons of different varieties, though. Please refer to the question above.
Site-to-site VPN vs. remote access VPN
A site-to-site VPN creates an encrypted tunnel from one network to a remote site — think about it like this: a connection between a file server in the office and a user sitting at home. A site-to-site VPN only allows for one connection at a time
Conversely, a remote access VPN allows multiple users to connect to a private network in order to access the resources and services of your company. It’s beneficial for businesses that have multiple remote employees.
